    Thank you very much ;)

    The day before we found a bargain in the internet and snatched it immediately... 33pounds for a double room for two and breakfast inclusive in Glasgow...
    [​IMG]

    5minutes away from the city centre.... so let's go...awesome weather, it couldn't be better [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    looks like in the mafia movies from the sixties... [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    tradition...
    [​IMG]

    Sightseeing...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Day 13... today it's time for Ireland [​IMG]

    but first we had a tasty breakfast...

    [​IMG]

    we had to hurry up to get the ferry in Troon.... but like always we were on time or even a few minutes early... better too early than too late [​IMG]

    on the ferry we had to read a little bit in the travel guide to get more informations about Ireland because we didn't had enough time for this before the journey...
    [​IMG]

    after we arrived in Larne we first had to wait until the cars moved over and we had enough place to get off...
    [​IMG]

    of course we had to drive to Belfast first.... up to the castle..
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    miaouuuuuu...
    [​IMG]

    midday-tiredness... I need coffee [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    we drove trough the city twice to get an impression of Belfast..

    conclusion about Belfast.... unfortunately we were not thrilled by what we saw so much... but maybe we only saw the wrong corners... [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    but we look forward to see this...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    so let's go out of the city...
    [​IMG]

    we found the first attraction quickly [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Team Germany was already there....

    Thank you :)

    To visit the Giant`s Causeway is a must... only shortcoming in Ireland is, that you have to pay for almost everything....for this reason we decided to walk around....

    the fight against the dangerous wild animals [​IMG]

    Day 14... Today we drive from Downhill to Letterfrack....

    For starters breakfast at the gas station... petrol for our bike, as well as motor oil and for us some coffee and something sweet...
    [​IMG]

    Energyyyyy...
    [​IMG]

    enjoying the secenery...
    [​IMG]

    let's go to the next "highlight"... another stoneheap...I think some Anglo-Saxon collected them [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Behind the hill was our next goal, this time it was a waterfall...
    [​IMG]

    The highest waterfall in this region... it was nice but not outstanding...but the journey to it was really funny...we drove the wrong way about five times.....offroad [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    short break [​IMG] amazing view...

    On our way we see a lot of beautiful places...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is the Kylemore Abbey Castle... we think it is the most beautiful castle in Ireland
    [​IMG]

    I need such a little lake in front of my house [​IMG] but for this I first need a house...
    [​IMG]

    in search of a campsite....
    [​IMG]

    The view out of our tent...

    Day 15....time flies....

    short lunchstop...
    [​IMG]

    nice little castle [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and another highlight in Ireland... Cliffs of Moher
    I think it cost about 6 or 8€ for the carpark...only advantage, a container for all our stuff like helmets etc...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and again 2€ p.P. for this tower... but we thought it was not worth it [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    you could also make a boat trip...

    apparently each year 3 people fall down....most of them because they were drunk..
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it was really warm...
    [​IMG]

    on the right you can see the new path...on the left is the old path on the cliff
    [​IMG]

    looks gruesome...like he is waiting for something...
    [​IMG]

    at the campsite we first needed something to eat...
    [​IMG]

    tasty uncle ben's mixture [​IMG]

    Finally some time to post something... the story has to end sometime [​IMG]

    Day16.... Today we are going to Dublin... after we drove past the campsite for three times and asking nearly everybody where we can find this, we finally found it...
    [​IMG]

    Shorts and then let's go to the city by bus...

    Fantastic. I'm glad you had a good time in the U.K. and Ireland and you seem to have had reasonably good weather.

    It looks like you two had an awesome trip. Thanks for taking us along with you.

    I was hoping that you would finish up the ride report some time.

    By the way I love my KLR too.

    a lot of hurly-burly...unusual for us...
    [​IMG]

    so first escape to the next pub...
    [​IMG]

    and this belongs to Ireland like the KLR belongs to us...
    [​IMG]

    and of course really tasty Irish stew...
    [​IMG]

    afterwards we went to the partystreet.... TempleBar
    [​IMG]

    every pub was full of people and everywhere was live music....two more guinness and we were ready to take the bus home...Tomorrow morning we leave Ireland and go back to England...

    Really really early in the morning... rustling and crackling... the rabbits found the stocks of our neighbours [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    everybody is still sleeping.... but they will awake when we start the engine at the latest [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    we found our place on the ferry...let's go back to England...
    [​IMG]

    we will miss you Ireland... [​IMG] but we will come back...oh yeah!...
    [​IMG]

    first we have to find something to eat...
    [​IMG]

    we also have to eat something healthy sometimes...
    [​IMG]

    cutlery is on the bottom of the box... [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and dessert [​IMG]
